years ago, as we all know, we were considering lmj terminals to import natural gas to the united states. what a difference a few short years make. by developing new technology to access potential new sources like oil shale, which often goes not talked about, we will be able to dramatically increase our energy potential and role as the global energy leader. oil shale in the western united today is estimated at 800 billion barrels, which is nearly three times the proven oil reserve of saudi arabia. as the numbers clearly show, we in the industry are investing in america's future. and we'll be sharing what that means through a new campaign we are launching over the next few weeks, which will focus on raising understanding of the unique and foundational role of the u.s. oil and natural gas industry and what it means to our economy. what it means for our communities, and for o- america's lives, for revenue, for refining, and what it means ultimately to job creation and economic recovery. oil and natural gas companies support 9.2 million jobs and could easily support an additional 1.4 million

of people thought that was in possible. how could we do that? nobody had been in orbit yet in the united states. what kind of rockets are we going to build to be given to do it, and what is the main principle? he was going to build a big spacecraft but we didn't have a rocket to go in. we needed to lift the spacecraft that would do everything. take people up, go to the orbit, land, a comeback and then back into the ocean again. it was a monster. so he needed a rocket for the 1970's. so we had one to carry the injection and the other to carry the big spacecraft until somebody said we met. if we look at what we want to do, which is to get a man on the moon and bring him back, let's look at the settlements of this instead of a spacecraft to do everything. >> 100 years from now -- i'm just throwing a question and i will go back to this -- that you touched on something hundred, 200 years from now or we going to look back at the space program and say how primitive. in the 200 years, where to go from here from new york come to london, how advanced is this thing going to get? >> time will tell o

direct part in new un sanctions. this is in the wake of new north korean threats against the united states. cnn pentagon correspondent looked into how dangerous the nuclear capability really is. what are you hearing there sf. >> the rhetoric out of pyongyang is very hot. the question you raise is the one the administration has to take a look at. how real and dangerous is the nuclear threat? >> north korea's latest saber rattles threatening the south just one day after pyongyang said they will have missiles and conduct a new nuclear test leaving now doubt kim jung un is not giving up his father's nuclear program. >> they have the capability to conduct the tests in a way that make it very difficult to determine whether or not they are doing. >> there signs they are ready to test if ordered. >> they are maintaining fairly high state of readiness at the test site. if the order is given from pyongyang to go ahead, they can probably conduct the test in a few weeks. >> satellite shows a tunnel entrance where the device may undergo final assembly, a bunker for personnel and equipment and a

at the united kingdom they do not get caught up in this kind of wrangling. they are better governed nations right now. >> that's easy to say, i guess, when your comparison seems to be what is a completely dysfunctional congress at this point. jim, how do you go about trying to gauge how to even play this? you look at what happened over the end of the year, the fiscal cliff. and at the end of the day you might take away, well, they did get something done and the markets reacted positively. look at the rally in the first week of the year. do you approach it the same way? it seems to be to a certain extent we're not ignoring it, but at least saying i'm not going to -- >> i don't want to own domestic companies as much as i want to own foreign companies. s.a.p. not included. i think some of that's america's shakeup there. i think there are a lot of companies doing well. if you look to ppg's conference call yesterday, they're seeing a turn in asia. they're seeing europe getting better. so i want to be more oriented toward ppg and a little less toward target. >> ending a partnership with radio sha
of the united states, or who is, it is not special that this is a presidential debate. if you have the opportunity to ask a question about a major issue, take the opportunity because most of the time, in his view, the politician will use you and your network to sell his point of view and himself. if you have the opportunity to do your thing and ask the tough questions, that is the bernie shaw line. we learned in 1960 that kennedy arrived tan, rested, ready, and nixon was pale, 5 o'clock shadow, restless. at that time, studies suggested that kennedy won the debate on television but nixon won on radio. he came across as authoritative. you guys have been at this. what is important in our world of television that is so critical? what is the key thing? a wonderful, clear policy presentation or wearing the kind of socks you are today. really lovely socks. what grabs you like mondale in 1984, where's the beef. senator, you are no jack kennedy. the line or the more structured presentation. >> people vote for president. this is a different vote from anything you have to cast. if you vote fo
on constitutional grounds based on the 14th amendment to the constitution which says that the debt of the united states shall be respected. so their argument would be in that case that it is simply unconstitutional to have a debt ceiling at all. and they say that congress -- the president rather would be able to do that without invoking congress or meeting congress in any way. >> section 4, 14th amendment, validity of the public debt of the united states shall not be questioned. that's the exact wording. doesn't say increased. it says it cannot be questioned. but then law, constitutional law scholars are saying to everybody, it is constitutional to have the congress make the debt changes. they are allowed to do that. the 14th amendment has nothing to do with that. in fact most of the 14th amendment, due process, equal protection and citizenship clause is about giving african-americans the right to vote, live and prosper in the united states. >> right. that's right. and clearly if the president was to do what they call the constitutional option that the democrats are raising here as a possibility

of the united states. but you do know that the federal reserve has been quite instrumental here in pushing rates to historically low levels, flooding the economy with money, and chasing people into risk assets with the idea that that would create a sense of wealth, and therefore spending, and that is to a degree working. and the other side is that the american economy is tremendously resilient. so we are on a path to recovery. there are some head winds that are enduring. we're growing about half what we would like to grow at, but we are in a recovery, and i expect that 2013 will look a lot like 2012, 2% kind of growth which is not terrible, not great, but good enough. >> it feels like we're running on a treadmill. we're in the same exact spot and we keep running and running and getting nowhere. so jim, my question -- or peter, i should say, let's bring in peter here. my question for you is if you look at the vix, that fear gauge, last week it fell to its lowest level in five and a half years, what does that mean to you? what does that mean to investors and to the economy going forward? >> that's
senator. i'm a united states senator. of course, mr. hagel said that when he was serving in the senate. and another time he says, "the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here." not very diplomatic words, right? but are they anti-israel? >> no, i don't think so. carol, senator hagel has a long record of support for israel, support for israel's security. i think this is an outstanding choice by president obama because senator hagel is clearly, without any question, one of the most knowledgeable and sperexperienced leaders we on foreign defense policy. he's got a long record of support for the u.s. military, and he's a combat veteran in vietnam. so he's seen war. i think he's going to add weight to the cabinet, and he's going to work well with the president and be a real boost for our foreign and defense policy. >> what do you suppose he meant when he said the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here? what did he mean by that? >> i don't know what he meant specifically, but i know the remark was made some time ago, and i know that senator hagel has been very consistently
. they spend $12 million on motorola -- >> they open up north korea. they are like their own country. united states and google. >> and they're back in the map museum. >> the map museum. >> oh, yeah. >> you see larry on the subway with the glasses. have you seen this picture? riding the sweet train with the google glasses. >> i missed them. i'm on that train most of the time. when i'm not here, i'm on that train. >> how did you take away from your shopping time to go to that map museum? >> let's talk about dupont, posting operating earnings of 11 cents a share beating wall street forecasts. issuing a full year outlook above analysts' forecasts. the ceo did express some concerns about 2013. >> 2013 i think is setting up to be a cautious year. the question is, how will the u.s. economy respond? are we taking good steps around the debt? but the deficit has to be dealt with. and it needs to be dealt with in a matter of months. >> i guess the question, jim, here, is are they sort of sandbagging or preparing us for the worst? they did have to slash 2012 in october, so maybe they're preempting -- >>
>>> news4 at 6:00 starts now. >> preserve, protect, and defend. >> the constitution of the united states. >> the constitution of the united states. >> so help you god. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> a new term begins for president barack obama officially sworn in. big crowds already descending on the national mall for the build yn hupp to tomorrow's public ceremony and parade. good evening. i'm jim rosenfield. it's been a busy day in and around washington. rehearsals on the inauguration stage and parade preparations leading to gridlock downtown. more streets will be closed tomorrow, but crews blocked off pennsylvania avenue this morning to get ready for the inaugural parade. vice president joe biden took his official oath of office from supreme court justice sonia sotomayor at the naval observatory. soon after that he and the president laid a wreath at arlington national cemetery, and then at noon in the white house president obama received the official oath of office from chief justice john roberts, which the constitution requires on january 20th. we hav
we're pretty long through the united states of three-ring circuses. the most important spur for investment is confidence. three issues that held up business formation and stock investing for a long time. put a drag on it. uncertainty of the presidential election, uncertainty of the fiscal cliff and the sequester debt ceiling argument. two big bad events, only one more station on the gauntlet. it simply isn't as scary or meaningful as when it comes to the stock market or new business formation. sorry, it won't sell as many parents, and it just won't. smart investors are making a bet they can't wait for the third of the three washington incursions to be finished. once a big bad event is passed, the rick of responding floods in. now we're about to finish the third leg of the political steeplechase, and we will be given a level of certainty. you want to wait for those people to come in? it could be investing nirvana, a guy in brooklyn, cramer, smart guy. scared us with the election, scared us with the fiscal cliff and now scaring us with the debt ceiling. what are you going to s
as an opportunity for leverage to get those spending cuts that they didn't just get. the president of the united states says he's not going to play ball on that. he may unilaterally raise the debt and may lower the debt and there are a few options on the table so we'll have to see how that plays out. >> do you think he might invoke the constitution to prevent congress from holding him hostage? >> we have to see. the white house pretty much shut that down in december and november when there were discussions of possibly doing that especially when liberal democrats were suggesting he should do it and he had proposed and it was quickly shut down the possibility of being able to do this in the future without congressional approval and that was shut down not only by republicans, but also democrats who said how dare he think about it. i think it would be a radical move and only because there was some serious gridlock. >> jonathan, let's turn our focus now to the speaker. we covered speaker boehner. this is what the former speaker of the house had to say about him. let's take a listen on the other side.
of the house here in the united states. so it's all speculation right now as to whether he's coming back or not. those statements made by the communications minister yesterday saying he has respiratory failure are a great concern for many venezuelans. >> are they planning for his succession? if he does die, the vice president will step in. is there some opposition to him as well that might make a move? >> that's right. they're trying to position somebody at the national assembly so they have a voice there. also, there's a scenario where the national assembly can give him as much as 90 days. by him i mean president chavez so he can recover and come back and still take office. right now that's still up in the air. we don't know what's going to happen in the next week or so. >> all right. we'll keep our eye on that. thank you very much. >>> coming up as well, legendary film director oliver stone will join us live. he's known for tackling controversial sunlts. he directed a 2010 documentary about chavez, and he'll tell us why he's a fan of the venezuelan leader. there are other stories this hour. d
that looked like the united states of america and there will be 20 women as you point out among the 100 senators, there will a lot more women and minorities, hispanics and african-americans in the house of representatives. when all is said and done, there are democrats and republicans, and there is a democratic majority in the senate and there's a republican majority maintained in the house of representativess. the president has to deal with those facts of life. in the senate as you know and as our viewers know, on really important issues even though there's 55 democrats, 53 democrats, two independents who will caucus with the democrats, 55-45, even though there will be a democratic majority, you still need 60 to get important stuff done so the republicans will have a little check on that. the house of representatives, i think, the final number is 233 republicans, 200 democrats, two vacancies right now. the republicans still have an impressive majority in the house of representatives. as diversity is important, suzanne, the political parties are pretty important as well. the president i
with senator mitch mcconnell. if the president of the united states wants to talk about tax increases, look it up in the history books because it's not coming during 1913th session of the united states congress. >> how significant are the spending cuts that you're talking about? what would it take to get to you raise the debt ceiling? >> two things that would have to occur, either one of which would cause me to raise the debt ceiling, one is a balanced budget constitutional amendment phased in over a period of time that would force washington to deal with this issue in a serious way. and the alternative, there would have to be spending cuts, real spending cuts, first year in excess of $100 billion. >> 100 billion. okay. constitutional amendment in a long time. jim newsel, you called the fiscal cliff deal to this point a fiasco. what had your high expectations for what's to come on the spending and the debt limit that they have to deal with in the next couple of months? >> i don't have very high expectations. >> i didn't think so. >> i mean, i think at this point in time we're seeing history
at a picture of washington, d.c. right now. the 113th congress of the united states will be sworn in today. lawmakers will convene on cap doll hill at noon. the new congress will have 20 female senators, the most ever in u.s. history. and for the first time, there will be an all female delegation from a state, new hampshire. and tammy baldwin a democrat in wisconsin will become the nation's first openly gay senator. >>> just ahead this morning, if there's good video out there especially of criminals caught on camera, you can rest assured you will see it here on "good morning maryland." >> something like out of a movie. take a look at this. within seconds you can see a van goes right through a gas station door and they drive off with the atm. we'll share the rest of the video with you when we come back. >> hang in there. the house leaders are now pledging to vote on getting victims from sandy much-needed help. >> fighting a fire is bad enough. without a hydrant? nearly impossible and scary. what happened when a fire department couldn't find a working hydrant. >> and we have lots of clouds a
of a lot like the united states' objective in afghanistan. >> in north mali you have islamic extremists, you have al qaeda, you have drug traffickers. this could become another afghanistan. >> this could be the next afghanistan. >> stephen: yes, the parallels are obvious. it's just like afghanistan, in that i don't know where mali is. [ laughter ] and the best part about this next afghanistan is that it won't be ours! the usa is nowhere near this thing. >> the us now today officially involved in the fight being waged by france in mali. >> us cargo jets have flown at least five missions in mali this week. >> stephen: sacre bleu!

very active on this issue, but the united states supreme court several terms ago, actually, issued a ruling that really limited the due process rights of those in civil commitments and really rooked at it, contemplated it as an extension of the existing criminal sentence. and so, but it hasn't stopped the litigation, but there is a lot of work that needs to be done still on civil commitment issues. and so that's -- it's kind of an ongoing project, and it exists a lot in a host of different contexts. i don'ti don't know if you're tg about a specific context, but for sex offenses, people committed for mental, because of mental illnesses and there are a range of issues that the aclu used in working on with partner groups to actually address and raise the due process concerns around civil commitment. >> can you explain something about the philosophy behind, um, incarceration at pelican bay and why -- what is the idea behind isolating a person, um, so acutely? >> there, um, so one is aside from the campaign to end overincarceration at the aclu, we like to have big campaigns. but another
